San Jose State Spartans vs Georgia State Panthers

  • Time: Saturday, December 19, 2015 7:00 PM ET
  • Place: Florida Citrus Bowl
  • Line: The San Jose State Spartans are the 3-point favorites
  • Total: The total is 56.

San Jose State Betting Analysis

The Spartans had a lackluster season, unable to win consistently and ending up with a 5-7 record, ranking second in the MW-West. This includes losing three of their last four games by only a score.

While not having much drive on offense, the Spartans could capitalize on gaining yards via the ground game if running back Tyler Ervin plays well or via the air game through the passing abilities of quarterback Kenny Potter.

They have much more to worry about in attempting to stop the Panthers’ passing game, as they face one of the most productive passers in the nation Nick Arbuckle. However, the Spartans do have what it takes to stop the pass and are ranked at the top of their division, allowing only 153.6 yards per game and 14 touchdowns via the pass.

Georgia State Betting Analysis

The Panthers had a shaky start this season with a 2-6 record, which made it seem like they would continue to establish themselves as strong college football contenders. However, under the leadership of head coach Trent Miles, the Panthers picked their game up and pulled off four wins in a row, including a fantastic win over Georgia Southern in their last game of the season.

As mentioned above, the Panthers have an able man at the quarterback position, Nick Arbuckle, who poses a big threat to the Spartans’ defense with 346.7 passing yards per game and 26 touchdowns.

On defense, the Panthers are a top-notch team. Georgia State has given up only 14.3 points per game over the span of their four-game win streak, including holding Georgia Southern to 135 rushing yards, which is an incredible feat in and by itself.
